The Mustard Carolina Reaper is a rare strain of the Carolina Reaper pepper, which is currently the hottest pepper in the world, according to Guinness World Records. It is believed that the Mustard Carolina Reaper is slightly less spicy than the original Carolina reaper Red, but its fruity, sweet flavor is very similar.
As its name indicates, the Mustard Carolina Reaper starts off green and ripens to a golden yellow, mustard-like color. Unlike the original Carolina Reaper, the Mustard Carolina Reaper has smooth skin, but some pods will have rough, bumpy skin.
Warning: Using this pepper requires extreme caution. Wear hand, eye and breathing protection.
